Influenced by the Modernist movement, Linda Barsotti explores the formal qualities of abstraction and sculpts everyday materials, by scanning the fragments layering and forming something new. Detritus 3 is part of the series Musings on the Mundane. It is a personal exploration of man-made, household materials that are used daily, yet go unnoticed. She experiments with the texture, form and line of the plastic bag removing visual references and triggering a transition from function to form. It is now recognized as something unrecognizable, a collision between the representational and the abstract.
